The Community of Terran Nihilists is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 115 million Terran Nihilistsians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Terran Nihilistsian economy, worth 1.55 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 13,497 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terran Nihilists's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terran Nihilists is ranked 111,108th in the world and 126th in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,062.01 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
